Unthawed Ep. 1 is the journey to lake Michigan for amazing smallmouth fishing, as well as walleye & perch. I'm traveling with Manager Matt from Googan Squad and joined by Jeremey Starks who has won multiple bass fishing elite series titles. The waves are big, but so is the fishing : )

  • First of all you just insulted the Michiganders. There is the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Then there is the Upper Peninsula also known as Yooper Land. You need to learn more about Michigan before you even talk. We don't fish on the beds that's cheating and also is illegal in most states including Michigan! Michiganders and the neighboring States have been protecting the Great Lakes from getting destroyed by idiots. Want to know more just ask!

  • I’ve lived in Wisconsin all my life. Great people, great food, great boat engines, great fishing and great fun. FYI: a very important thing was overlooked each day. The one who catches the first fish is suppose to buy ice cream for all fishermen in the group. Wisconsin has some of the best ice cream to hold you over until you deep fry those walleyes. Thanks for highlighting Wisconsin and the UP! God Bless!

  • fun facts, it was predicted that the child Jesus when he had grown enough to choose the good over evil would prefer curds and honey Isaiah 7:14 and 15. Welcome to our beautiful Great Lakes! Wisconsin is heavenly fishing inland too, so many old bogged-over lakes left by glacier retreat, with huge lunkers in the waters underneath. It is like icefishing, you have to cut a hole in the peat where the dwarf trees are growing on the bog, and pull up what has been living down under for only God knows how long, unbothered by birds of prey or bears. The best food is up here, too. Be sure to take some pasties home with you.
